A dedicated specialist in Moscato and Barbera, the two main grape varieties in Asti, Perrone's wines emphasise freshness, beautiful, vibrant fruit and drinkability.
Blackberry jam, chocolate, spice, brandy, menthol and sweet spices infuse this sumptuous, flamboyant Barbera with tremendous depth. Never a shy wine, Mongovone packs a real punch; there is not much subtlety here.
"Mongovone is a wish that came true. I strongly wanted this vineyard and still today, it is with great love that I live in and nurture it. The true secret of Mongovone lays in its composition representing the last strip of Langhe land comprised in Monferrato territory. Its high levels of active limestone and microelements allow me to harvest grapes rich in fragrance, color and structure. Mongovone is a vineyard with its own cleverness: it varies its metabolism depending on the specific year’s climatic trend. Assembling Mongovone each year is a real source of pride. This wine is to me the Barbera’s sublimation…" –Stefano Perrone
